D.auratus originates from the rainforests of Central America ranging from Nicaragua to Columbia. D.auratus is one of the most variable dart frog species in terms of appearance and has many different 'colour phases' or 'morphs'. It is a semi-arboreal dart frog that is often considered to be one of the hardiest species and makes a perfect introductory species for those considering keeping dart frogs. Like its close relatives D.tinctorius and D.azures the call of the green and black dart frog is ultrasonic so outside the scope of human hearing.These individuals are the albino form.
